First Congregational Church

New London, CT  2014

This is one of many landmark churches in the city of New London.  It was built in 1850 and designed by Leopold Eidlitz.   I thought it to be a fitting picture for Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving

The Mohican

New London, CT  2014

This is the entrance to what was once the Mohican Hotel, one of the finest hotels in Connecticut.  It was built originally by Frank Munsey to house his magazine publishing offices in 1896.  When that failed he converted the building into a hotel.  The building was designed by William B Tuthill who also designed Carnegie  Hall in New York City.  Today the building provides housing for the elderly.

The Bulletin

This was once a train depot belonging to the NYNH&H Railroad.  It's nice that it has been repurposed to house the offices of the Norwich Bulletin.

This one recently opened in Manchester.  The restaurant chain caters to young adults and families offering food, drinks and a number of arcade style games  of "skill" for kids of all ages.  Has anyone ever played Skee Ball?

Madison Dawn

Madison, CT  2014

About once a week I pass this inlet on my way to work.  Today I finally stopped to capture the early morning light just before sunrise.  There are some mornings when you just have to be a little late for work.  I'm sharing this with Weekend Reflections.  Have a nice weekend.
